Business Development Manager
I started life at GSF back in June 2009 as a cleaning operative on board the cross channel ferries in Portsmouth. I began to learn the basic foundations for cleaning and started to understand the methodology behind it. I progressed through the roles of supervisor and contract manager of this site and also undertook at small stint in our in house grounds maintenance division.
Shortly after this GSF put me onto their high potential development scheme where I trained to be an area manager. After successfully working in this role I was given the opportunity to head up mobilisations at GSF, concentrating mainly on large scale multi-site start-ups spanning the whole UK.
An opportunity arose in the business development team at GSF. I was provided with a mentor that I worked alongside to ensure I was confident and learnt the skills required. My experience of the previous roles I had undertaken at GSF meant that I was fully versed in the operational areas of Business Development and could showcase the GSF model having lived and breathed it myself, from being a front line operative and also form a management perspective.
My drive, determination and passion for what I do helps me to succeed, keeps me focused and always ensures I’m delivering to a high standard.
I know from experience that GSF is the company that trains people well enough so that they can progress and move on, but treats them well enough that they don’t want to.
